Hey jell91bean,
\015\012 Without knowing what make and model your camera is I would suggest you try cleaning the battery contacts with an eraser. If this doesn't work I would suggest you have it looked at by an authorized service technician to possibly have it repaired. If you purchased this camera 6 months ago it is most likely covered by a manufacturers warranty and any repair on it should be free of charge. You could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they should be able to send it out for service. I hope this helps!

I have a fujifilm a235 and have tried 3 SD cards in the camera, the camera says card error to everyone of the cards. I have formatted all the cards in the camera, and the cards work ok in a different camera but cant get the camera to work. This has happened quite a few times with the camera, has spells of working ok and then either has message, card error or read error.

Canon EOS Rebel XT with EFS 18-55mm lens. Trouble-free for two years. During a weekend of lots of use, suddenly the camera would not autofocus. Switching to manual focus, the camera worked. Then it started working okay in autofocus. Later that day quit altogether. (Would not release shutter even in manual mode.) Removed the lens and cleaned the contacts on both lens and camera, started working okay but only temporary. Went through several cycles of this over the weekend, so I'm not sure

When turning on the camera, the card reader light flashes sometimes for a full minute before you can take a picture, I am using a Olympus xD 2GB memory card which works fine after the card reader light quits flashing. Is there some setting that I need to set to get the camera to quit reading the whole card every time I turn the camera on. I formatted the card on the camera.

It seems to me that Nikon Point & Shoot cameras, or at least the last 2 that I have bought, have a usable life span of approx 4 or so years before the LCD's decide not to work in turn, makes the camera non usable. I have a 5700, 3.5 years old before it stopped working & a S4, which the LCD also quit working and it is 4 years old, I think my next point & shoot will be a Canon to go along with it's big brother that I bought this year, 50D Does anyone have a solution to this Nikon problem?

No solution here. If you want a quality Nikon, you need to spend thousands for their professional DSLRs. Take care of your Canon and you should be very happy with it. ... Nikon Coolpix S4 Digital Camera

I have a Canon Rebel Xt that occasionally has problems with the shutter button suddenly not working. The camera is still on and all the menu buttons continue to work. It acts like the lens decides to quit communicating with the camera body. The only fix I have found is to take the battery out for 10-15 sec. and it works like normal. Any advise on whats going on would be great, Thanks Brandon

Camera Failure I was taking pictures of my daughter on the beach last week and my camera just quit. The lens is still out. This has happened before when the battery died, but I charged the battery and it still won't work.

Error 99 This is the second day with the camera and i got a Error 99, i read up on some websites that said to take out battery for a few mins and that resets the error, well it worked. Before I reset it I did take off the lens and put it back on. Now the error seems to be gone. I took the camera out with me to work and it was quite cold in the car so i am hoping that it was the moisture/dew that caused this error. Anyone else have any input on this?

Hi I have an Olympus 1050 SW which had been coping well with canyoning. ... until now. After the last canyon trip, the camera had severe condensation problems in the LCD screen and lens. I have dried the camera out with a hairdryer and used silica gel packets, which worked OK. But now when I point and shoot the camera it gives me streaks across the image. However, if I use the movie camera option, no streaks. I'm not quite sure what to do with the camera as it's past warranty and I'm reluctan


The fact that the streaks are present only when shooting stills confirm that the issue is not with the LCD display but with the imaging chip. The camera uses a different section of the imaging chip to record video with, so what's happened is that moi ... Digital Cameras
